Electric Light Orchestra - Discovery Album Track Listing
Discovery buy CD music Customer Reviews
List All 8 Reviews
This album marks the departure of ELO from being an orchestral rock band to becoming a commercial venture that was to make its mark on the 1970s disco scene. The closing track "Don't bring me down" is a classic rocker (with disco sounds) and it was the first number by ELO to feature no orchestral instruments. ALL the tracks on this album have disco - like tones to them, some more than others. "Last train to London" and "Shine a little love" are dance numbers that really do encompass the whole 1970s disco style. It's a great dance album with lots of happy sounds and good vibrations; ELO are shining a lot of light and warmth in their music on "Discovery". There's also a complete DVD of all the tracks on this album (ELO did music videos for the whole of "Discovery" to compensate for the fact that they didn't do a world tour to promote the album) - check out this DVD, it's cool - has the whole flying saucer thing done, adding elaborate visual style to their flamboyant music. This is the last of ELOs classic albums before the band began to deteriorate. It's also quintessential 1970s disco and epitomises all that is dance, funk and hip for that time :)

||ELO's greatest hits|
There's not another opinion about "Discovery": the best album of ELO and I think it's one of the best of all the times. Includes beautiful songs like "Midnight Blue" and "Need her love" and one of the hymns of ELO: "Last train to London". It has a splendid beginning with "Shine a little love" and a better final with the strong "Don't bring me down". Simply, Jeff Lynne at his better moments.

||Pretty Solid ELO Album|
This album was lambasted when it came out, as a disco sell-out (thus, often referred to as DISCO-VERY). Yet, this has a lot of great catchy tunes, including "Last Train to London", which lifts part of the Mary Tyler Moore theme for its chorus, "Shine a Love" and, of course, their classic foor-stomper, "Don't Bring Me Down" (whose melody sounds curiously like the Pretty Things' "Don't Bring Me Down"). I'm not sure it's their best album, but far from their worst.

||The BEST ALBUM OF THE ELO|
tHE E.L.O bEST wORK. And Great recopilation and Comentary for Jeff L. One the Best Album of the all Time (Rock and Roll). Piece indispensable in the Music library.

|A GREAT FOLLOW-UP TO 'OUT OF THE BLUE'|
This album picks up musically where 'OUT OF THE BLUE' left off. This is also ELO's most romantic album with songs like NEED HER LOVE, MIDNIGHT BLUE and of course,their first single SHINE A LITTLE LOVE. But the song that stands out is DON'T BRING ME DOWN, ELO's biggest hit. The bonus track called LITTLE TOWN FLIRT is Jeff's tribute to his hero, the late DEL SHANNON.
